Benefits

At Viox & Viox, we have worked hard to develop our own special culture.  We believe that happiness is not necessarily measured by your career success.  We stress a work-life balance that our team members appreciate and ultimately enhances their productivity.  As a 75-year-old, third generation, family owned firm, we know that families come first. We expect much from our staff, but we also understand that with hard work, should also come time to let off steam.  We encourage impromptu lunch outings and we love to host monthly lunch parties.  And, finally, we want all our staff to be involved in their community and with their profession.  We encourage all team members join an organization outside of the office.  Whether it’s a professional or a community outreach group, we know that volunteering is an important part of the human experience and makes for a well-rounded individual.  Here’s a round-up of our job benefits:

  • Dress: We aren’t fussy.  No need for high heels or suit and tie here.  Civil CAD Technicians may on occasion need to go to client meetings or visit project sites.  So, dress as a casual professional and keep a spare pair of hiking boots in your trunk.
  • FlexibilityWe keep official office hours, but you will find team members who come in early so they can leave early to pick up their kids from school or come in late and stay late so they can drop the kiddos off at school in the morning!  As long as deadlines are met, we don’t worry about punching a time card.
  • Food: Here at Viox & Viox, we love to eat!  We frequently bring in lunch and sometimes we add in some fun raffles and games.
  • Community Outreach: Get involved! We encourage community volunteerism.  Our team members are on food pantry boards, school PTA’s, church councils, and city/county government committees. 
  • Family Atmosphere: We treat each other like family because we ARE a family. We know each other well.  We come together in good times and bad.  Our low staff turnover rate is evidence of the family culture that we have created.
  • Room to Grow: We are a small firm.  You will never be stuck doing one type of project here.  We expect everyone to pitch in on all types of projects.  You will broaden your expertise and design experience and become comfortable talking to clients and attending meetings. 
  • A Competitive Compensation & Benefits Package: Notice that we didn’t list this first? Obviously, your salary, insurance, and retirement plan are important to you.  It’s important to us too and we take it very seriously.  We do an annual review of our compensation packages and we feel like we are competitive within our industry and within the Greater Cincinnati region. But if you don’t fit our culture, then no amount of money will make this the job for you.
